Feature Disparities

In terms of safety features, the Z8 S lacks the tyre pressure monitoring system (TPMS) and some convenience features like dual-zone climate control and push-button start. Additionally, it ditches auto headlamps, auto wipers, and power folding wing mirrors found in the standard Z8. However, it compensates with new exclusive features like the ‘Midnight Black’ hue and body-colored door handles.

Price and Configuration

While the Z8 Select presents a more affordable option, it maintains the performance aspect with both petrol and diesel engine variants. The petrol engine delivers 197 bhp and 380 Nm of torque, while the diesel variant churns out 172 bhp and 400 Nm of torque. Both engines come with a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission, offering versatility to consumers.
